No!

MM is included within APR. In fact, APR's copy even has a few changes to it.
To "install" APR, you'd do something like the following:

$ cd apr/.libs
$ cp libapr.* /usr/local/lib
$ cd ../shmem/unix/mm/.libs
$ cp libmm.* /usr/local/lib
$ ldconfig

We don't happen to use shared memory, but advocating the use of a different
libmm could cause version skew somewhere.

And yes: we could end up picking up somebody's libmm anyways; we'll resolve
that separately with APR, but we should not advocate the skew right now.
[ in fact, APR is considering the removal of MM, so we may be safe in the
  long run; we can wait and see ]

Lastly, the thing about libmm above is a misdirection. libmm is need for the
*client* ... not for Apache. Apache builds/links APR (and, thus, MM) as a
big-ass static link. It won't ever refer to libmm.so.

The client does, however, so the client needs libmm.so installed (if you're
building the client shared).
